A spotlight on a few upcoming 2019 SMP Romance titles:

It’s Getting Scot in Here by Suzanne Enoch, 2/26/19
The first in a wickedly seductive new Scottish historical romance series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch!
London socialite Amelia-Rose Baxter is nobody’s fool. Her parents may want her to catch a title, but she will never change who she is for the promise of marriage. Her husband will be a man who can appreciate her sharp mind as well as her body. A sophisticated man who loves life in London. A man who considers her his equal—and won’t try to tame her wild heart…
Rough, rugged Highlander Niall MacTaggert and his brothers know the rules: the eldest must marry or lose the ancestral estate, period. But Niall’s eldest brother just isn’t interested in the lady his mother selected. Is it because Amelia-Rose is just too. . . Free-spirited? Yes. Brazen? Aye. Surely Niall can find a way to soften up the whip-smart lass and make her the perfect match for his brother for the sake of the family.
Instead it’s Niall who tempts Amelia-Rose, despite her reservations about barbarian Highlanders. Niall finds the lass nigh irresistible as well, but he won’t make the mistake his father did in marrying an Englishwoman who doesn’t like the Highlands. Does he have what it takes to win her heart? There is only one way to find out…
Getting Hot with the Scot by Melonie Johnson, 4/30/19
Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .
Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?
Jackson by Emily March, 6/25/19
A brand new family-linked trilogy set within the Eternity Springs world! This new direction sweeps from the celestial magic of the small Colorado mountain town to a rugged canyon deep in the heart of Texas.
A Highlander Walks into a Bar by Laura Trentham, 7/30/19
A brand new series from Laura Trentham, full of love, laughs…and highlanders!
The annual Highland Games festival, the highlight of the Highland, Georgia tourist and social calendar, is only three weeks away, and just like every year, Isabel Buchanan will be hosting the festival with her mother on the family estate, Stonehaven. But this year, her mother keeps getting distracted from the planning – ever since she returned from a two-week trip to Scotland with a six-foot tall, very handsome souvenir, she doesn’t have time for much more than being smitten.
Alasdair Blackmoor has been tasked with rounding up his wayward uncle Gareth and returning him to his duties as 9th earl of Cairndow and their family estate in Scotland. In Highland, Georgia, Alasdair feels like he’s stepped into another world. The slow pace and friendly inhabitants highlight the hectic coldness of his life in London. But it’s the fiery, funny Isabel who fascinates him. When he locates his uncle, Gareth confides to him that he wants to shed his aristocratic responsibilities and enjoy a simple life with his new American love, Alasdair sees the appeal in starting over.
As the festival approaches, he carves himself a place in Highland, but it’s the woman at the center of it that feels like home. But when Alasdair and his uncle’s lies about their true identities are revealed, they’ll have to use all of their Scottish charm to win back the Southern women who have ensnared their hearts.
Handle with Care by Helena Hunting, 8/27/19
The next book set in Helena Hunting’s hilarious and sexy world of Shacking Up!
The Orchid Throne by Jeffe Kennedy, 9/24/19
